Beyond the Bricks | Relief. Rebuild. Restore

January 13, 2020 Uncategorised

We’re deeply saddened by the bushfires and the devastating effects they’ve had across Australia. As fellow Victorians, our hearts break for the land, lives, homes and wildlife lost. Thank you to our heroic firefighters, volunteers, and communities who have united to protect our beautiful country during this catastrophic time. The Australian spirit is alive and well, despite the unfortunate circumstances we are facing as a country.

A large group of brands within the Australian real estate industry have come together and Hodges is proud to be a part of it. We’re working with relief organisations to support the bushfire affected communities and wildlife with our campaign #BeyondtheBricks.

Beyond the Bricks is a three-phase plan to provide assistance not only during the crisis but to the communities most affected in the aftermath.

If you’d like to donate or get involved by setting up your own fundraiser, visit https://www.beyondthebricks.com.au/hodges. Your support will help make a difference.

The Brands currently involved in addition to Hodges are: Barry Plant, Belle, Buxton, Coronis, Elders, First National, Harcourts, Hockingstuart, Laing+Simmons, LJ Hooker, Marshall White, McGrath, PIPA, PRD, Professionals, Ray White, Raine & Horne, Remax, Richardson & Wrench, REINSW, REIV, REIA, REISA, REIQ, REIWA and Stone.
